Founded in 1991 by a group of committed lay people, this Christian channel remains unique in Lebanon and throughout the Middle East. And that is the foundation of its continued success.
Broadcast by the satellite network Hot Bird, NourSat TV (also known as Télé Lumière) is a free channel with an ecumenical and religious remit, financed exclusively by donations from supporters. Its executives remain committed to the principle of airing neither commercial advertising nor political views.
This Lebanese channel is entirely devoted to Christian values, such as love, peace, justice, freedom and human rights around the world. The Church continues to offer its full cooperation with NourSat TV in promoting these fundamental beliefs.
As reflected in the channel’s inspiring slogan “The light be with us,” God’s light shines through a daily schedule of programmes broadcast between 1:00 in the morning and 23:30 at night local time. Mass is celebrated at the start of the schedule, as well as at mid morning, in the joy and rejoicing of belief in God, and accompanied by a sermon from His Excellency the Bishop in the Basilica of Our Lady of Lebanon. The broadcasts are varied, covering news from the Vatican and reports on His Holiness the Pope’s latest activities and speeches, as well as teachings about the path of holiness and the shepherd’s good news of brotherly love and forgiveness.
